About

Gagosian is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by Cy Twombly to inaugurate the new gallery at Grosvenor Hill in Mayfair.

The exhibition will include as yet unseen large Bacchus paintings, with loans from the Cy Twombly Foundation and other collections.

Twombly’s enduring importance to the art of the present is attested to by the many recent survey exhibitions of his work in leading international museums. He has been a cornerstone of Gagosian since the 1980s. Gallery exhibitions of his work presented over the last twenty-five years include Bolsena Paintings (1989–90), The Coronation of Sesostris (2000–01), Lepanto (2002), Bacchus (2005–06), and The Rose (2009).

Throughout this period, Twombly inaugurated several Gagosian galleries with exhibitions of new work, including Ten Paintings and a Sculpture (London, 2004), Three Notes from Salalah (Rome, 2007–08), Leaving Paphos Ringed with Waves (Athens, 2009), and Camino Real (Paris, 2010). The Last Paintings and Photographs toured Gagosian Los Angeles, Hong Kong, London, and New York in 2012.
